James 3:13 (KJB) Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
Who is a wise man?
Where are all the wise men in this world?
These are relevant questions that need to be asked today in this wicked world. Doesn’t it seem like the evil at work has risen to new heights and there is no longer much wisdom of God at work in this world? Be careful of allowing such feelings to infect your mind and heart for though it does seem as if this world gravely lacks wisdom, there is always a remnant of God’s chosen people at work in this world.
In fact, when you think about it for a moment, when a child of God shines His brilliant light, it illuminates brightly in the middle of such obvious darkness. Think of it as like lighting a match in the darkness of light. Or in shining a flashlight in a darkened room. The light cannot be hidden for it is obvious and apparent against the backdrop of darkness.
Brilliant light shining forth is what a man filled with the wisdom and working of God displays as a banner for demonstrating the wisdom and ways of God to a spiritually dead world. His or her life is like a spiritual billboard with pure works and conversation bringing glory and honor to God in this dark and spiritually dismal world.
